The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared that by acceptance that it retained the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor that allegedly supervised the sharing of money and looting of the national treasury, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has admitted that it deliberately sabotaged the economy and made life very difficult for Nigerians.
The PDP in a statement on Sunday by its Spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan called on Nigerians to note the nerviness, uneasiness and tensionthat gripped the ruling party since the call for the resignation and prosecution of the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, was brought to the public for fear that such will expose theatrocities of its leaders.
The party insisted that by the comments of the APC National Secretary, Senator John Akpan Udoedehe, the APC deliberately kept a CBN Governorthat supposedly supervised the “sharing and looting” of monies in office
to enable APC leaders to pillage the CBN.
“Akpan Udoedehe might want to be reminded that General Buhari, as he was
then known, had in his campaign, promised to fight corruption, yet he
retained a CBN Governor, who his party is now accusing of having
superintend over “sharing and looting” of funds in the CBN”.
PDP marvelled that six years after and with the naira heavily depreciated, the CBN Governor, whom Akpan Udoedehe accused of supervising the “sharing and looting” of monies in CBN is still inoffice.
The party called on the APC and the Buhari Presidency to come clean on the activities that brought the value of the naira to it’s knees and stop the horrible resort by the APC to blackmail those who are demanding for transparency and accountability in the nation’s fiscalsector.
